Overall System Benchmarks:

BAPCO Sysmark 2001 Source:MadOnion / BAPco

SYSmark2001 uses real world applications concurrently as an accurate way to test the system by following patterns that reflect the way real users work. SYSmark2001's workloads accurately represent today's updated business usage model. The benchmark runs at a realistic execution speed, with think times between application interactions, in order to emulate a desktop user's interaction with the operating system and applications. Higher numbers denote better performance.

BapCo SysMark 2001 Benchmark Results
Soyo P4S Dragon Ultra Plus Sysmarks Ranking
1. Internet Content Creation - 2.0 GHz 159
2 Internet Conent Creation - 2.16 GHz 170
1 Office Productivity - 2.0 GHz 194
2. Office Productivity - 2.16 GHz 212

The P4S Dragon Ultra Plus performs pretty well on the 2.0GHz Pentium 4, netting some very respectable benchmarks under office productivity. Overclocking leads to some moderate improvements as we might expect to see.

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

WinBench 99 v1.2 Benchmark Results
Soyo P4S Dragon Ultra Plus Score Ranking
1. Business Disk 7570
1a. Business Disk - 2.16GHz 7080
2. High-End Disk 24200
2a. High-End Disk - 2.16GHz 25600
3. Business Graphics 499
3a. Business Graphics - 2.16GHz 628
4. High-End Graphics 961
4a. High-End Graphics - 2.16GHz 1080

WinBench 99 is similar to that of Sysmark 2001 in that is uses a series of scripted programs to accomplish its testing - moving through them much in the same way that a normal person would. The Business Disk marks actually drop a little as the system is overclocked, though the rest of the benchmarks improve by small to moderate amounts.
